San Francisco, CA — October 16, 2013 — Talksum, Inc., a leader in real-time data processing solutions, today announced its high-speed cross-domain data management solution for oil and gas exploration and production. Designed to accelerate real-time decisions, the Talksum solution improves data acquisition and transformation, and converts data into flexibly managed event streams, tailored for cross domains such as exploration, extraction, navigation, distribution, communications, health and services, refinery control, and others within the oil and gas sector.

The Talksum cross-domain solution handles data sets at the well site, remote units, regional sites, headquarters, and at the real-time operation center (RTOC) level and can format data in real time, as well as enrich data by correlating events with other external data sources.

The Talksum Data Stream Router – TDSR – filters, data reduces, monitors, aggregates, enriches, analyzes, and routes live streams to power, in real time, data sensor information and alerts such as flow rate, fluid pressures, casing seals, blowout preventer integrity, fracture gradient conditions and pore pressure, gas detection, and other safety and efficiency mechanisms, and routes the relevant data to the respective locations. The TDSR data management solution offers a systems approach, which integrates multiple domains that together assess and potentially affect overall well integrity and safety.

“Oil and gas engineering, production, and operations are exceedingly complex and depend on a wide range of technologies and a large number of contractors and service providers with disparate types of data,” said Alex Varshavsky, founder and CEO of Talksum. “In a cross-domain scenario, the TDSR solution would ingest the different types of data, allow the data to “talk” to each other, and intelligently route relevant parts to the appropriate real-time BI tools, dashboards, and respective databases at the well site, remote units, RTOC, and so on, for immediate action. In addition, pertinent parts of the data flow would be streamed to other cross domains such as health services, insurance companies, and the like, to minimize latency.”

The TDSR can be used for cyber security, a difficult task that must account for different transports, syntaxes, structures, and content. “It’s critical to implement mechanisms for detecting, deterring, and analyzing security events in real time – no matter where they originate from or what they affect,” said Varshavsky. “The TDSR offers an efficient and cost-effective way to accomplish this.”

In addition to cross-domain data management, the Talksum product includes foundational components for changes in government regulations and standards, as well as for policy control.
